    How Long Can You Resist a Chocolate Bar For?

     

     

    We’re betting it’s not 80 years…

    A coronation souvenir bar (more than a little past it’s sell by date) made to celebrate the coronation of King George Sixth is up for auction in South Derbyshire.  Talking about their unusual lot the auction house said "We handle rare and unusual items on a daily basis but are still often surprised by objects brought to us. Who would have thought that no-one would give in to the temptation to eat the chocolate? It may be well past its sell-by date now but we are certain there will be an appetite for this in the saleroom!".  Amazingly the chocolate (still wrapped in its original foil) seems to have fared well – we can’t say any chocolate has ever hung around the Chocolate House long enough to try this out, but at 80 years old it

    The End of an Era!

      

    Many of us know well the familiar wrappers and shapes of a box of Cadbury’s Roses, whether they be carefully placed on a coffee table or liberally strewn across the floor after a Christmas gathering.  The satisfying twist of both ends of the wrapper have become somewhat of a trademark since Cadbury’s introduced their first box of Roses in 1938.  However, they have said this week that these will be replaced with the more modern tear away wrapper much to the upset of chocolate traditionalists everywhere. 

    Cadbury’s claim this is to help the chocolates retain their flavour as well as to avoid cross contamination, apparently their most common complaint in 2014.  Two of their most recognisable chocolates will also be reshaped to allow the chocolate

    Having just had The Queen’s 90 thbirthday it’s quite the month for royal celebrations as The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge celebrate their wedding anniversary today!  It’s hard to believe it was a whole five years ago that excitement and street parties swept across the country after months of anticipation.  Who can forget that Alexander McQueen dress?  Of course it was only fitting that we created our own little homage to the day – out of chocolate and a hashtag of course!  Who can escape a hashtag these days?!

  8. Ever Wondered How to Make the Perfect Chocolate Spread?

    Ever Wondered How to Make the Perfect Chocolate Spread?

     

    There is very little choice when it comes to nutty chocolate spread, one seems to rule the roost and admittedly we haven’t complained!  Nutella’s familiar flavour counts many kitchen cupboards across the world as home but, as explained recently in the Guardian, it hasn’t changed much since it was created out of rationed ingredients during the second world war.  Containing 55% pure sugar as well as a fairly large amount of palm oil it’s not one of the healthiest concoctions to grace our kitchen tables at breakfast time! 

    Although chocolate spread may not usually be intended as a health food it’s always necessarynice to cut down on sugar which is much maligned in the press.  After examining the best chocolate, nuts, sweetener,
